Visiting Peace Corps Volunteers in the east of Georgia, I took this picture on a lush, slightly cloudy spring afternoon. A farmer was driving his horse and wagon home through the low hills of the Caucasus.
In December, my host family fattened and then slaughtered a pig for the Orthodox Christmas and New Year's holidays. This is my host brother pouring boiling water over the pig's head in the back yard. He later roasted some of the pork meat.
